Welcome to High Beech School

Dear Parents/Carers,

High Beech is a unique learning community committed to providing a Christian based education for all its pupils. This is a school where children develop caring, confident and tolerant attitudes. It has a strong network of staff, parents, governors and children who work together to make the school a happy and vibrant place.

Our vision is to provide a high quality education where children are able to realise their full potential and to secure their future as life-long learners. The beautiful forest setting offers an exceptional hands-on educational experience using the outdoor environment as a classroom to develop confidence and self-esteem.

If you have any enquiries, please do not hesitate to contact me by phoning the school office.

Kind regards


Sarah Roffey

Headteacher, High Beech Church of England VC Primary School
